For your Computer you also need Wireless Card as well as for Printer too.
When you have wireless card on both then you just need to search and locate the destination device and tranfer your data as you are doing while using wireless

In other words
"
Just by a wireless adapter for your computer and it installs into an open PCI slot just like a wired network card. Also, you want to avoid USB wireless cards. Since the data has to pass through the USB bus it will slow down your connection. "

26319258-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-9.jpg

Click on the "Share Privately" button on the left of the Share window. Only people you invite will be able to join this private shared folder.
26319258-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-20.jpg

Choose the recipients. Under the Recipients box, type in the email addresses of all the people you want to share this folder with. These people will need SugarSync accounts in order to join your shared folder.

Add a personal message. There is a text box under "Recipients" where you can add a custom or personal message to welcome them and give them a background of your folder. This is optional though.

Send the invitation. When you're ready, click on the "Send Invitation" button. An email will be sent to your recipients inviting them to join your shared folder. Once your recipients accept the invitation, your shared folder will be created, downloaded, and synced on their computers.

How to connect two computers using a crossover cable.


Hi.

You can use a crossover cable to share files and folders between the two computers.

A crossover cable looks exactly the same as any ethernet cable, but its internal wiring is reversed respect to the regular cables used to connect computers to routers or switches.Crossover cables have the 1st and 3rd wires (counting from left to right) crossed, and the 2nd and 6th wires crossed, thay can be recognised because the word Crossover is printed on top of the cable.

732d0de.gif

Before proceeding ensure that the cable you are using is a crossover. Crossover wiring isdifferent. By using an ordinary ethernet cable you will not be able to extablish a directconnection between computers.

To use the crossover you will need to disconnect any other cable connection to computer ethernet cards. Naturally both computers must have a wired network adapter installed .

After connecting the crossover, you will need to configure the network connection.

Turn off both computers, connect the crossover (cat5 or cat6) cable, and turn back on computers.

Ensure that all firewallare turned off, and on Vista answer yes to all requests of authorization for the new network.

On both computers go to system properties, and ensure that the two computers have the same workgroup.

Second step is going to Sharing and Security, in system properties, and sharing the files and folder that you want to transfer.

Once the folders are shared you will see in My computer (Computer on Vista) the folder shared from the other computer. Simply copy and paste the files.

You may be asked to restart computer after each step.

If after sharing files and folder you want to share Internet connection, then you will have to assign two IP addresses that are in the same range to the two connected computers.
An IP address is a series of numbers from 1 to 256, in the format XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX . The two IP addresses must share the first three numbers to share the internet connection. In the real case, you can set the IP adresses to 192.168.0.1 and 192.168.0.2.

Purchased a gigaware cat5e crossover network cable to transfer files from one older computer to a new one. Cant get it to tranfer info.


So that you will be able to transfer your file from one PC to the other you have to share your folder first.
1. Share your folder in your old computer. Right click the folder then click Properties and Choose Sharing Tab. Check Share this folder (For windows 7 or vista you have to click Advance sharing button first) 2. Open your explorer from the other computer and Choose Network. Now, you should see the shared folder where your files are. Then start copying the files to your new computer.
*Note: you can also delete the files from the other computer by setting permission of the folder properties.

How can i set up network file sharing


First step is to check if the file sharing option is checked in my computer folder options.

Start- My computer- TOOLS - FOLDER OPTIONS- and click on the second tab VIEW- scroll down to the last option which will show as USE SIMPLE FILE SHARING.

Level 1: My Documents (Private) loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); The owner of the file or folder has read and write permission to the file or folder. Nobody else may read or write to the folder or the files in it. All subfolders that are contained in a folder that is marked as private remain private unless you change the parent folder permissions.

If you are a Computer Administrator and create a user password for your account by using the User Accounts Control Panel tool, you are prompted to make your files and folder private.

Note The option to make a folder private (Level 1) is available only to a user account in its own My Documents folder.

To configure a folder and all the files in it to Level 1, follow these steps:
  1. Right-click the folder, and then click Sharing and Security.
  2. Select the Make this Folder Private check box, and then click OK.
Local NTFS Permissions:
  • Owner: Full Control
  • System: Full Control
Network Share Permissions:
  • Not Shared
Level 2 (Default): My Documents (Default) loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); The owner of the file or folder and local Computer Administrators have read and write permission to the file or folder. Nobody else may read or write to the folder or the files in it. This is the default setting for all the folders and files in each user's My Documents folder.

To configure a folder and all the files in it to Level 2, follow these steps:
  1. Right-click the folder, and then click Sharing and Security.
  2. Make sure that both the Make this Folder Private and the Share this folder on the network check boxes are cleared, and then click OK.
Local NTFS Permissions:
  • Owner: Full Control
  • Administrators: Full Control
  • System: Full Control
Network Share Permissions:
  • Not Shared
Level 3: Files in shared documents available to local users loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); Files are shared with users who log on to the computer locally. Local Computer Administrators can read, write, and delete the files in the Shared Documents folder. Restricted Users can only read the files in the Shared Documents folder. In Windows XP Professional, Power Users may also read, write, or delete any files in the Shared Documents Folder. The Power Users group is available only in Windows XP Professional. Remote users cannot access folders or files at Level 3. To allow remote users to access files, you must share them out on the network (Level 4 or 5).

To configure a file or a folder and all the files in it to Level 3, start Microsoft Windows Explorer, and then copy or move the file or folder to the Shared Documents folder under My Computer.

Local NTFS Permissions:
  • Owner: Full Control
  • Administrators: Full Control
  • Power Users: Change
  • Restricted Users: Read
  • System: Full Control
Network Share Permissions:
  • Not Shared
Level 4: Shared on the Network (Read-Only) loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); Files are shared for everyone to read on the network. All local users, including the Guest account, can read the files. But they cannot modify the contents. Any user can read and change your files.

To configure a folder and all the files in it to Level 4, follow these steps:
  1. Right-click the folder, and then click Sharing and Security.
  2. Click to select the Share this folder on the network check box
  3. Click to clear the Allow network users to change my files check box, and then click OK.
Local NTFS Permissions:
  • Owner: Full Control
  • Administrators: Full Control
  • System: Full Control
  • Everyone: Read
Network Share Permissions:
  • Everyone: Read
Level 5: Shared on the network (Read and Write) loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); This level is the most available and least secure access level. Any user (local or remote) can read, write, change, or delete a file in a folder shared at this access level. We recommend that this level be used only for a closed network that has a firewall configured. All local users including the Guest account can also read and modify the files.

To configure a folder and all the files in it to Level 5, follow these steps:
  1. Right-click the folder, and then click Sharing and Security
  2. Click to select the Share this folder on the network check box, and then click OK.
Local NTFS Permissions:
  • Owner: Full Control
  • Administrators: Full Control
  • System: Full Control
  • Everyone: Change
Network Share Permissions:
  • Everyone: Full Control
Note All NTFS permissions that refer to Everyone include the Guest account.

All the levels that this article describes are mutually exclusive. Private folders (Level 1) cannot be shared unless they are no longer private. Shared folders (Level 4 and 5) cannot be made private until they are unshared.

If you create a folder in the Shared Documents folder (Level 3), share it on the network, and then allow network users to change your files (Level 5), the permissions for Level 5 are effective for the folder, the files in that folder, and the subfolders. The other files and folders in the Shared Documents folder remain configured at Level 3.

Xp profesional 32 is not able to ping pc vista 64 bits, therefore xp is not able to see the files in the vista pc). the vista pc is able to ping and see share files of the xp pc. what could it be ?


First I would verify that all of your systems are connected to the router & they all have internet access, (whether they can ping or not). The second step, disable any zone alarm or norton 360, (they're useless anyways).

After making sure both systems are on the same router, (subnet, ip, etc..) AND on the same workgroup

From the vista computer, Right click on the folder you wish to share, and choose "Share..."
Sharing Tab
(Checkbox) Share this Folder
Permissions - Highlight Everyone, and choose full control
OK
OK

Security Tab
Advanced
Permissions
Edit
Add
In the TextBox type: Everyone
OK
OK
OK
Close/OK

You can now share files from Vista to XP

Password on shared documents on a workgroup


Password Protect Folders in XP
To password protect a folder built into Windows XP (for other Windows flavors, there are some freeware/shareware programs out there).
If you have a log in password for your account, this can be used to protect folders from other users. If not, you need to creat one. Your hard drive must be formatted using NTFS (which it probably is unless you're dual booting with another operating system). Here's what to do...
Right-click the folder that you want to make private and choose "Properties" (or Alt+Double-click). Go to the "Sharing" tab and check the "Make this folder private" box.
private-folder1.jpg
Click Apply . If you do not have a password on your account, a box will pop up asking if you want to assign a password. This must be done if you want to make the folder private, so click Yes . You will need to use your password to log on to your computer from then on.
Type in a password then confirm it. Click the "Create Password" button then close the Password window.
Click OK in the Properties dialog box.
Now anyone else logged on to your computer can't access that file without knowing your password.

File sharing


it is possible

If you have multiple computers in your home and they are connected through a home network, you can share files among your computers. That means you no longer have to copy files to a floppy disk or USB flash drive to transfer them to another computer. Once you configure your computer to share files, you (or another user with the appropriate permissions) can, by using Windows Explorer, open them from other computers connected to the network, just like you’d open files that are stored on a single computer. You can also choose to have folders visible—but not modifiable—from other computers on the network.
To share files on your computer with other computers on a network, you need to:
Share a folder on your computer. This will make all of the files in the folder available to all the computers on your network (you can’t share individual files).
Set up user accounts on your computer for everyone who needs to connect to your shared folder. If any of the accounts are Limited User accounts (unless an account is a Computer Administrator account, it is a Limited User account), follow the steps in Set permissions for files and folders to enable them to open your files.

To access shared files that are on another computer on your network, you need to:
• Connect to the shared folder from other computers on the network. This procedure is described in Map a network drive.

Note: By default, file permissions only allow your user account and administrators on your local computer to open your files, regardless of whether a person is sitting at your keyboard or at another computer. It may help to keep these three things in mind when setting up file sharing:
• Files have user permission settings.
• Every computer has its own user database.
• Some accounts are administrator accounts and some aren’t.

Configure your computer to share files To share a folder on your computer so that files stored in the folder can be accessed from other computers on your home network
1.
Log on to your computer as an administrator. For more information, see Access the administrator account from the Welcome screen.
2.
Click Start, and then click My Documents.
68599-click-my-documents.gif 3.
Right-click the folder that you want to share, and then click Sharing and Security.
68599-click-sharing-and-security.gificotip.gif Tip: If you want to share your entire My Documents folder, open My Documents, and then click the Up button on the toolbar. You can then select the My Documents folder.
4.
If you see a message that reads, As a security measure, Windows has disabled remote access to this computer, click the Network Setup Wizard link. Then follow the instructions in How to set up your computer for home networking. On the File and printer sharing page of the Network Setup Wizard, be sure to select Turn on file and printer sharing. If you do not see this message, skip this step and go to step 5.
68599-click-network-setup-wizard.gif Note: If you do not see the Network Setup Wizard link or the Share this folder on the network check box, your computer probably has Simple File Sharing disabled. This is a common change made to computers used for business. In fact, it happens automatically when a computer joins an Active Directory domain. You should follow these instructions to share a folder instead.
5.
In the Properties dialog box, select the Share this folder on the network check box.
68599-click-share-this-folder.gif 6.
If you want to be able to edit your files from any computer on your network (instead of just being able to open them without saving any changes), select the Allow network users to change my files check box.
68599-click-allow-network-users-to-change-my-files.gif 7.
Click OK.
68599-click-ok.gif Windows Explorer will show a hand holding the folder icon, indicating that the folder is now shared.
To connect to the shared folder from another computer, follow the steps described in How to map a network drive.
Note: By default, only you and other people with an administrator account on the computer sharing the folder will be able to open your files. To limit access of specific users with an administrator account on the computer sharing the folder, read How to set permissions for files and folders.
